A frustrated man decides to take justice into his own hands after a plea bargain sets one of his family's killers free. He targets not only the killer but also the district attorney and others involved in the deal.
Lara Brennan is arrested for murdering her boss with whom she had an argument. It seems she was seen leaving the scene of the crime and her fingerprints were on the murder weapon. Her husband, John would spend the next few years trying to get her released, but there's no evidence that negates the evidence against her. And when the strain of being separated from her family, especially her son, gets to her, John decides to break her out. So he does a lot of research to find a way. Written by
The "bump key" technique used by Russell Crowe's character does actually work as portrayed on older and cheaper (non-antibump) cylinder locks. However, the car lock tennis ball technique has been busted as a myth on MythBusters: Viewer's Special (2007) See more »
When John and Lara bypass the zoo exit they continue on the Highland Park Bridge. Shortly after, after the car avoids a truck and spins out of control, they come to a stop. As they exit the vehicle, you can clearly see Chestnut Ridge mountain in the background putting them on toll Route 43 outside of Uniontown, PA. This is over an hour-and-a-half from the Pittsburgh zoo. See more »

Had read some positive / negative reviews so wasn't sure what to expect.
I cannot believe how emotional this film was! The beginning is good - we find out who everyone is and how everyone got to where they are, nothing especially exciting but well-written and acted. Then the film kicks into gear with the escape.
Honestly, I was actually shaking at one point with nerves because I wasn't sure if they would make it or not.
People criticising films for not being believable should go and watch documentaries.
This film was exciting, had excellent music, was well acted and the positives FAR outweighed any negatives.
Definitely glad I watched this.
